I just wanted to thank you all again for your exceptional service and attention to detail. Our guests raved about how wonderful the venue was and how lovely all the staff were. This was certainly our experience from start to finish. We are particularly grateful for the generous and accommodating way you handled the pandemic. You made it all so easy. We think that we are incredibly lucky to have been able to get married at Pangdean.

The best day of our lives
Thank you, SO much for literally the best day of our lives yesterday. We are still in complete awe of how amazing the day was and just wish we could do it all over again.

Absolutely perfect in every way!
Rich and I would like to give our heartfelt thanks to all at Pangdean for such an amazing wedding day. We had the best time with you and all our guests are still talking about the beautiful barn and grounds at Pangdean that made our day one to remember. Special thanks to Krysia who made me feel at ease as soon as I met her and reassured me the day before that everything would be perfectly placed. She did not let me down as I was overwhelmed with how well she had taken on board my ideas and style. Another special thanks to Jamie who kept us calm and liaised well behind the scenes with the Best Man to ensure our day went as smoothly as possible. Nothing was too much trouble! And lastly to Nicky for overseeing the whole day and working with us to ensure everything was just as we wanted. I was particularly pleased with how well she liaised with our photographer Craig, suggesting photos up on West Hill just at the right time of day, which have come out perfectly. I am so pleased we decided to have our wedding at Pangdean. It was absolutely perfect in every way! Nicola & Rich

Pangdean truly is the most wonderful venue
We just wanted to say how AMAZING our wedding day was. We always knew we had picked a special venue, that was miles ahead of everywhere else. However, we couldn’t have imagined just how wonderful the day would turn out to be. Our guests haven’t stopped raving about the day, Jamie gets a particular mention every time! The food was outstanding and there was so much of it! All of our guests have also praised the food, and there are a few ex chefs amongst them! Not only was the food amazing, the waiting staff even offered top ups of sauce etc, the sticky toffee sauce was out of this world! Even our Photographer was wowed by her meal - and she visits a lot of venues! During the drinks reception, the canapés were presented brilliantly and the quality and quantity was excellent. Our guests commented on how attentive all of the staff were, one noted that she had barely a mouthful of Prosecco before being offered a top up - this is the kind of service we like!! Another mentioned that they couldn’t believe how many canapés they actually got to eat, as they had been to many weddings where they’d only got one or two of each, at Pangdean, three at a time was encouraged… and irresistible! Hannah would like to give a particular mention to Crisha (I’m so sorry if I have spelled your name wrong!) because she made me feel at ease as soon as she met me from the car and reassured me the barn was looking beautiful (although there wasn’t a doubt in my mind!). Jamie put Joe at ease just as instantly and ensured he knew what to do before the ceremony etc. Every single member of staff did their job with a massive smile on their face, and were so welcoming and helpful. Despite visiting Pangdean on many occasions whilst planning, I was still blown away by how absolutely jaw dropping and stunning it was! Your team are absolutely brilliant at venue styling and it turned out to be everything I imagined - and more! Literally everything is thought of and executed to perfection at Pangdean, we couldn’t have imagined a day running more smoothly, or our guests being any more impressed…. with everything!! Our only regret is that we might not be able to return unless we get invited to a wedding at Pangdean - we will be looking out for one of your supper club evenings as we are desperate to return and take in all of the beauty Pangdean offers! Finally, we’d like to mention Gill and Nicky for their help in all of the planning of our wedding, everything we asked for was accomodated and even when we changed the date three times due to Covid, they couldn’t have been more helpful or understanding. Everyone who works at Pangdean is warm hearted and does everything they can to ensure perfection, it is truly the most wonderful venue.

What an amazing weddng day!
Greg and I would like to say a massive thank you to you for what was an amazing wedding day! Since making the booking, every person we spoke to in the run up to our wedding said how amazing and beautiful Pangdean was and people who attended events before were so complimentary! We both loved the look of Pangdean as soon as we stepped into that Garden and then The Barn. You must be so proud of what a stunning venue you have created. Thank you for also being so accommodating with our menu tasting. The food on the wedding day was perfect and we have had a lot of compliments - one of family members said it was the best wedding food she had ever had. Please do tell Chef and also thank them for cutting up our wedding cake and allowing us to have enough left to take home and eat ourselves! Despite Covid being a real pain, you were continuously accommodating and the use of the outdoor courtyard was incredible! Such a fantastic space and just made the evening of our wedding that extra bit special - the band enjoyed the outdoor performance too! How lucky were we to have such beautiful weather. I would like to highlight 3 more people; Jamie, Kyrsia and Aiesha. Jamie was fantastic! Not only was he a delight when we met him a few days before, but all of the Groomsmen said he was great and made sure all the music went to plan (which was the boys' job!). He just commanded the day and couldn't have done anything more to make us feel that he had everything under control and actually was having fun while doing it! Kyrsia - when we went through the details of the day (and dropped off wedding bits), she made me feel so confident that she had everything under control and wanted every detail to be perfect. Then on the day I really feel she went out of her way to look after me. Despite the face mask, you could tell she was super smiley underneath! Aiesha - what a gem of a person - probably the friendliest person on the planet! Somehow, whenever I needed anything she was just there! She even plated up some more pizza for me when I lost the first plate. I also had loads of my guests say great things about her. Your staff are such an asset to you and despite the hot weather and long hours they seemed to be over-joyed to be there and help anyone who needed it. What a fabulous team that made the day feel extra special. As you can tell, we had a fabulous day and Pangdean will be a special venue for us always. Thank you so much from both of us!

You and Your Wedding Best Venues 2019

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

That's impossible to answer! We've had so many incredible events at Pangdean. For us, the best ones are always the ones where you can feel the love. The size and even all the extra details are not as important as the happiness that glows from our couples. It's what makes our work so joyful!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Remember that it is meant to be fun. Relax and let us help you. We have a brilliant team of staff who will make sure your day is spectacular.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

It's always very touching when people find a way to include loved ones who can't be there - perhaps by including photos of them, or mentioning them in speeches. And there are also lots of fun touches that couples add - from having a signature cocktail, to using photos of each guest as a place name.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Magical, inviting, warm, delicious, charming

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We have so many wonderful photo spots - from the magical barn with its hundreds of twinkling fairy lights, to our landscaped gardens with our 400 year old Mulberry Tree arbour, to the farm tracks at sunset with views of the downs.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Many. But we don't kiss and tell!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Oooh there are many, but probably the maple cured Pangdean smoked salmon taco served with red pearl and cucumber salsa, and chipotle creme fraiche

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

We offer delicious late night snacks all made by our talented chefs. Choose from fish and chips in cones, curries, hogroasts, homemade pizzas...the list goes on.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our spectacular barn roof - it soars overhead and is filled with hundreds of twinkling fairy lights.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

That it is family owned and run. We offer an incredible attention to detail and every wedding is attended to with love by our team.
